FALLING WATERS, W.Va. - A family fishing trip turned tragic when two boys found the body of their grandfather Sunday morning in the Potomac River, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources said.
Samuel Guice, 71, of 909 Shaffer Drive, drowned a little after midnight near the place he and the boys had earlier fished, said Patricia Manown of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
DNR police called the death an accidental drowning.
Manown said that Guice and the two juveniles, believed to be his grandson and stepgrandson, went camping on Veterans of Foreign Wars property on the West Virginia side of the Potomac River, one mile up-river from Four Locks Boat ramp on the Maryland side.
